Beaver Tails
1/2 cup  warm water
5 tsp  active dry yeast
1 pinch  white sugar
1 cup  warm milk
1/3 cup  white sugar
1-1/2 tsp  salt
1 tsp  vanilla extract
2   eggs
1/3 cup  vegetable oil
5 cup  whole wheat flour, or as needed
1 quart  oil for frying
2 cup  white sugar, or as needed
1 tsp  ground cinnamon (optional)
in a large bowl, stir together the yeast, warm water, and a pinch of sugar. 
let stand until slightly foamy, about 5 minutes. when the yeast is foamy, 
add the other 1/3 cup of sugar, milk, vanilla, eggs, oil and salt, and stir 
until smooth. mix in about 3 cups of the flour, stirring with a spoon, then 
gradually add more flour, turning the dough out onto a floured surface when 
it is firm enough to handle. knead for 5 to 8 minutes adding flour as needed 
to form a firm elastic dough. place dough in a greased bowl, and cover. let 
rise until doubled, about 30 to 40 minutes. 
gently deflate the dough, and pinch off a golf ball-sized piece of dough. on 
a lightly floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll the ball out to an 
oval. set aside to rest covered with a tea towel, and continue with 
remaining dough. 
heat about 4 inches of oil for frying in a deep-fryer to 375 degrees f. if 
you do not have a deep fryer, a wok or dutch oven will work. i toss in a 
tiny bit of dough and see if it sizzles and swells immediately. if it does, 
the oil temperature is where it should be. just before placing the beaver 
tails in the oil, stretch the ovals out into a tail shape, thinning and 
enlarging them as you do. carefully place the tails in the hot oil one or 
two at a time. fry, turning once, until the tails are a deep brown, about 1 
to 2 minutes per side. remove using tongs and drain on paper towels. place 
remaining 2 cups of sugar in a large bowl, and stir in cinnamon if you are 
using it. toss beaver tails in the sugar bowl while they are still hot. 
shake off excess. 
to make the dough using a bread machine, add the dough ingredients to the 
pan of your bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. 
select the dough setting, and press start. when the machine beeps, continue 
fromthe first rise
